Saucy ShrimpTHANK YOU for allowing me into your home and Around the Family Table for Sunday Supper this past year.

THANK YOU for caring enough to follow, to comment, to try new recipes, and to make suggestions.

THANK YOU for sharing how Sunday Supper Around the Family Table has influenced your families.

THANK YOU to the incredibly talented #SundaySupper Contributors… without you, my dream would never have become a reality!

THANK YOU for believing in me, inspiring me and joining me in making a difference.

I cherish and listen to your suggestions.  One of the things the became apparent was that you were in agreement,  Sunday Supper starts as one day a week but soon becomes a way of life.   Many of you suggested that I should feature more easy Weekday Supper ideas.  I have listened and we will now be featuring #WeekdaySupper inspiration every day of the week.

Cheers to a year filled with love and memories Around the Family Table and to new beginnings!

We love to serve these shrimp over quick and easy Portuguese Rice  or when you have more time it is fabulous as a Sunday Supper Meal over Cheesy Polenta.  Add a green salad or broccoli and you are good to go!

What a beautiful dish! Now that the one with the shrimp allergy is out of the house, I need to put more shellfish into our menu!

Wow does this sound so yummy! Shrimp is one of my favorite foods, but my husband swears he is allergic to it.. oh well guess I have to eat the whole recipe.
